The 18-year-old, named locally as Alfie, was chased into the street and knifed to death after an argument over food, according to witnesses.
Rush-hour commuters watched as the nurse, an off duty police officer and then paramedics desperately fought to save the young man’s life as he lay outside a Tesco store in a small parade of shops and restaurants at 5.30pm last night.
Ms Hamblin added: “Alfie was a lovely boy everyone liked him and he had a real character. I am not saying he was an angel but he did not deserve this.”
A witness, who asked not to be named said: “I was in Tesco’s and I heard a loud argument going on. Then someone was pushed or fell against the shutter of the shop next door.
Police closed off High Road in Ickenham, the scene of the murder, last night and cordons were still in place today causing traffic delays.
We are delighted to announce that Ickenham Online have partnered with local estate agent Coopers Residential! The partnership is well timed with the imminent opening of Cooper’s new branch in Ickenham.
Coopers have chosen the old Barclays bank premises on Swakeleys Road as the location of their new branch. With refurbishment well under way, Coopers hope to revive the unit into a welcoming office which Ickenham locals will be pleased to have on the parade. The branch is scheduled to open this autumn.
On the opening of the branch, Mark Cooper, Director of Coopers, says “Estate agencies attract browsers, which is generally good for the viability of shopping parades where there are numerous independent retailers. The previous vacant frontage did not make a positive contribution to the street, we hope that our new office will change this and benefit the parade.”
The opening comes after the company’s success of their six other branches in Ruislip, Ruislip Manor, Hillingdon, Uxbridge, West Drayton and Fitzrovia. With these offices working in tandem, Coopers will be able to provide clients with unrivalled market coverage meaning their property will reach the widest audience possible.
Recent research highlighted there to be an increasing popularity with Ickenham among home buyers and was named the third most in-demand area due to its tube station offering easy access into central London. A close-knit community and outstanding schools also make Ickenham a desirable location.
